Had my baby on December 31st and since then have had so many issues trying to get him to breast feed. I had a ton of nurses trying to help me get him to latch but nothing seemed to help. When I left the hospital I was under the impression that it would be easier once my milk came in. Well it hasn't been. I've been using a nipple shield because that is the only way that I have been able to get him to suck. And he has a great suck when he wants to use it. My nipples aren't inverted or flat or anything like that. Last night he actually latch on my breast without the nipple shield for the first time ever and nursed great! However I only got him to repeat that once for about ten minutes during the following feeding and then he wouldn't even try to latch onto the nipple sheild. I'm ready to just break down and cry. I want to be able to feed my baby but I feel like I'm failing. I don't have enough hands to hold his head in place and compact my nipple enough to get it into his mouth. And even when I do he just keeps crying and won't suck. I don't know what to do anymore.
